Fren Banklin Posted November 4, 2009 Share Posted November 4, 2009 I have a mostly working machine that was a bit flaky so I decided to run a repair install. When I went to input the Product Key (that was used on the previous install and reported by Magic Jelly Bean), the installation refuses the Product Key. I've tried at least 6 different disks and all have failed. I'm waiting for the 7th to complete as I type this. Here's the Product ID information: Product ID: 76487-OEM-0012031-51200 This number was taken directly from the computer's registry, per the instructions on lunarsoft's wiki. The wiki lists 5 different possible disks: 76487 : XP Media Center Edition 2005 76487 : XP Pro Royalty OEM ‡ 76487 : XP Pro SP2 (retail) 76487 : XP Pro SP3 (OEM) 76487 : XP Pro volume license (with '640' channel ID) I know the install isn't a Media Center edition. There is no Certificate of Authenticity on the case, so I can't rule out the other 4 possiblities. To make certain of success, I've labled the disks correctly. So far I've tried: PID 76487OEM from a disk VX2PFPP_EN with SP2 PID 76487000 from a disk VX2PFPP_EN with SP2 PID 76487OEM from a disk GRTMPOEM_WN with SP3 I've tried others, but only started documenting the last 3. <break> OK, the last attempt succeeded. I used a corporate volume disk that worked. Odd thing is, the Product ID information from the disk that worked is nothing like what was in the registry originally. Here's what worked: [Pid] ExtraData=786F687170637175716954806365EF Pid=55274270 The plan is to now change the registry information to reflect the previous (and legal) installation. I've spent about 2 days on this. Am I missing something obvious ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
